The Friday good news post is aimed at sharing positive stories with you as you go into your weekend. To get variety and diversity in this, I need stories from different sources. One of those would be you. Do you have good news to share?

What makes good news?
In my opinion, good news is made up of positive stories. It could be someone’s triumph over difficulty. Perhaps there is a story of human kindness? Is there some action taken by a business or group that results in social good? There must be lots of these stories neighbourhoods across the globe.

Bringing good news is imparting hope to one’s fellow man. The idea of redemption is always good news, even if it means sacrifice or some difficult times.
~Patti Smith

Why good news?
The work of Barbara Fredrickson (and many others) highlights the benefit for finding some good in your day. To see and appreciate some aspect of the day that may surprise and delight you and others, brings good vibes. If we can connect with others over a good news story – it can reverberate amongst us.

Give this world good energy

Share a story about someone else
Positive actions that benefit another, build positive experiences for yourself. Look around you. What good news do you see? Is there someone in your neighbourhood doing good deeds for others that you could share? A story of inspiration is always good news – as it spurs others into action.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. 
~ Vincent Van Gogh

How to share your story
Email me a story or send me a way of contacting you so we can connect and I can post your story. All stories that identify others are checked with them before publication. Names and places can be suppressed if you would prefer to remain anonymous. I look forward to hearing from you.
